JESSICA Simpson admitted in her new memoir she was drunk in bizarre Ellen interview, saying she can’t even watch it now.
She slurred her way through the appearance talking about her “uterus” and “relationships” with women.
The 39-year-old mom of three has opened up about battling addiction to alcohol and pills in her new memoir “Open Book.”
Jessica told the “Today” show of the 2017 appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show:” “I can’t even watch the interview.
“It was a weak moment for me and I wasn’t in the right place. I had started a spiral and I couldn’t catch up with myself … and that was with alcohol.”
When asked if she was pregnant on the show Jessica shocked audiences saying: “We have an IUD.
“Nothing’s gonna get in that uterus.”
She added during the interview: “I don’t think I’ve ever had a seven-year relationship … other than with a woman.”
Towards the end it, she also told Ellen she had written either 38, or 36 or 39 new songs for an upcoming album.
Viewers were left stunned by the appearance writing on social media: “I was embarrassed 4 her. Painful 2 watch. She had 2 b high or drunk…”
Jessica said the addiction issues stemmed in part from the pain of being sexually abused as child, beginning at the age of six.
After feeling like she hit rock bottom months after the Ellen show, Jessica finally sought treatment and got sober.
She said in the book: “I was killing myself with all the drinking and pills.
“Quitting was the easy part. I was mad at that bottle. At how it allowed me to stay complacent and numb.”
The singer and mogul said of getting sober: “When I finally said I needed help, it was like I was that little girl that found her calling again in life.
“I found direction and that was to walk straight ahead with no fear.”
